unlikely that the u.s. would move forward unilaterally. that's all the indications we have gotten from very senior officials here at the white house. instead, they have made clear that they would want to build some sort of a coalition, us a noted, before the u.n. or with nato. bottom line with nato forces that china and/or china or russia could block that, seems likely they would, in terms of any effort to move forward militarily and nato strained with resources in afghanistan. unclear whether or not nato would be on board. still a lot of work behind the scenes, but i think it's fair to say that it's highly unlikely that the u.s. would more forward without some sort of support from either the u.n. or nato, wolf. >> standing by to get more from the white house. hala gorani is standing by at the cnn center as well. we're awaiting moammar gadhafi. getting ready we're told to speak to journalists gathered at that journalist hotel in tripoli. we'll check in to see what's going on there as well. stand by for that. nic robertson is at the hotel and we'll, okay, have live coverage of gadhafi when h

. phoenix, arizona on our line for republicans. what should the president say on the u.s. involvement in libya on monday? caller: if he's the intelligent president i want him to tell us why we're going into libya and not the sudan and not bahrain. i think it's un:tionable to open another front when we're spending millions a day on iraq and afghanistan and 50% of our revenue goes to defense. host: the sudan would be another front, too. caller: we could help solve that with humanitarian aid. with the cost in fossil fuels, if we paid the actual cost that fossil fuels cost us, we would pay $12.50 a gallon for gasoline because these wars are about oil. what i'm saying is if he's the innocent president then why doesn't he talk about -- intelligent president why doesn't he talk about the bahrain or sudan? he's doing it for oil just like the last -- just like the iraq war. and i think we need to question why we're doing these things. if we want to help people resisting and trying for democracy, let's do that. but let's not be hidden about our agenda.

of help the united states is prepared to give. hi, chris. >> yeah, just got off the phone with u.s. forces japan saying they have not yet received a formal request from the japanese government. he also said this is a very different mission than what we're used to. he says think of haiti, things like that where we came in and jumped in and started to help. he said every step of the way has to be mapped out and approved by the japanese government. it's a technologically savvy country with a lot of pride. everything has to be formally requested before the u.s. military can act. let's take a look real quick at the map and i can show you a bit about what the u.s. is dealing with here. you can see the plant, there are helicopter crews running relief missions right around in that area. and for a second day, those u.s. helicopter crews came back with low-level contamination of radiation. they had to be soaped down and all their clothes destroyed. and they came up all clean. they're now being told some of the helicopter crews in and around this area are being told to keep their sleeves rolled down,
community is tightening the noose around gadhafi. the u.s. says all options are on the table. meanwhile gadhafi is striking back in force. they attacked rebel troops in the two major cities closest to the capital using tanks and anti-aircraft guns. overnight government troops tried to retake zawiya, but rebel troops held their ground. >> reporter: as the blood shed in libya moves into another day, the tone in washington has turned decidedly sharper. the white house is now clearly ratcheting up the pressure on gadhafi to step down. troops loyal to moammar gadhafi are fighting to take back territory now in rebel hands. amateur video captured this firefight between pro and anti-government forces in libya's third largest city. the uprising that began last month poses the biggest threat yet to gadhafi, his bloody crackdown has reportedly left hundreds, possibly thousands, dead. still, in an interview with christianne amanpour of abc news gadhafi laughed off calls for him to step down and denied using force against his own people. >> they love me all my people with me. they love me all. >> bu

a weekend of punishing allied air attacks in libya. according to u.s. officials, coalition strikes have successfully crippled gadhafi's air defenses and a no-fly zone is effectively in place over the country. although gadhafi himself is not a target of what is being called operation odyssey dawn, one of the strikes caused extensive damage to the libyan leader's tripoli compound last night. at this hour, gadhafi's whereabouts remain unknown. he has vowed to fight a long, drawn out war with western forces. making the rounds on the sunday talk shows, admiral mike mullen stressed that the u.s. role in libya would be limited but he did not give an exact date of how long the u.s. would remain involved. >> there's no one that understands better than i that the stress and the strain that we've been under for a long time in our tenth year of war, both in iraq and in afghanistan. that said, we are within our capability and capacity to be able to execute this mission. the directions have been given to me, it is limited. it is very focused and in that regard, we're more than able, as has been shown

. this morning, a u.s. fighter jet crashed in the field while carrying out a mission. however, the u.s. military says the crash was not a result of being shot down and both crew members are safe. nbc's jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon with the latest. this was an f-15 strike eagle. they really have a track record of being a good operational machine, so give us the background of the types of mechanical difficulties that should bring something down. >> it's impossible to tell. it could have been hydraulics, engine failure. until you talk to the pilots or do an examination of the aircraft itself, which maybe be difficult since the thing crash landed in what is considered to be ostensibly hostile territory. what they usually do is launch an air strike on the aircraft itself on the ground to destroy it so that any enemy forces can't essentially pick it apart for sensitive equipment, particularly that which would relate to communications and intelligence and the like, but at this time we don't have any clue to exactly what that mechanical problem is. now, somebody in the military does, we just don'

of terrorism after the u.s. drops 40 missiles and tomahawk cruise missiles targets sites. >> steve: joining us from the site where that plane was shot down yesterday, rick, do we know, whose plane was that and who did shoot it down? >> reporter: we can confirm now who that plane belonged to. we believe we're the only network have located the fighter jet that shot down out of the skies of benghazi, yesterday morning. behind me is the engine of that jet, the wings, char pieces remains and the photographer was rolling on the jet that was hit by anti-aircraft fire and crashed into that area on the southern edge of the city and what we're hearing from locals is that they believe the pilot, who was an opposition fighter as opposed to gaddafi directed this wounded jet into this area that's unpopulated and old adoption home. and the pilot put the jet here and we know that the pilot had a family and ejected far too late and we found the harness from his ejecting seat out of the seat itself and to clear up confusion we found a tail section of the jet pointed with the old royal jet and the new flag for t
